I'm trying to implement a CKEditor Widget (based on CK 4.4.4) with inline editing as a custom widget. This works great so far except that RAP is blocking text selections. How can I enable those in custom widgets?

Thanks
Christian

Hi.

If you are in the same document as RAP (and not in an iframe/browser
widget), you probably need to catch the DOM
(on)select/(on)selectstart/(on)selectionchange events and call
"event.cancelBubble = true;" and "event.stopPropagation();" on them so
RAP doesn't cancel them. Be sure to also test this in IE8 if you want to
support it.

However, afaik CKEditor has all it's text inside an iframe, and RAP
doesn't do anything with stuff that happens in iframes. Also, as you may
be aware, we already have a CKEditor 3.x based RAP widget, and an
upgrade to the CKeditor 4.x may be coming this year.

Greetings,
Tim

Hi and thanks,

catching those three DOM events works great. This is necessary because in inline editing mode (http://ckeditor.com/demo#inline) ckeditor works without an iframe.
